Benign prostatic hyperplasia

 

The following pages draw together sources of good evidence about benign prostatic hyperplasia. Some stories come from past issues of Bandolier . Others will come from systematic searching, especially for systematic reviews about BPH. We will add to them as time and resources permit.

Below is a list of more or less systematic reviews that we found useful. If we have abstracted them in more detail and you want to see it, follow the link.
